Q. I will be attending college this upcoming fall and I expect my time to be filled with long hours at the library and coffee shops near by. Since I am just entering college, my spending limits are minimal but I still would like to keep my appearance stylish yet still comfy. Suggestions?
A. Comfortable, simple, affordable basics that mix and match easily and layer well should form the core of your college wardrobe. Start with a few pairs of jeans and long sleeve tees, then add in fitted blazers, boyfriend cardigans and chunky knit sweaters. Purchase a versatile coat and an edgy and trendy leather moto jacket as well as a roomy tote bag and handbag. Finally, add in some comfortable shoes you can walk in: cool trainers, ballet flats and a great pair of riding boots.
